RS Crum is a fee-only financial planning and investment management firm located in Newport Beach, California serving clients in Orange County, surrounding areas, and across the country. RS Crum specializes in providing objective financial advice to help clients manage, grow, and protect their assets during their working lives and through retirement. As fiduciary consultants, we prefer to serve our clients – not sell to them.

The RS Crum story goes back to 1976 when our founder, Richard S. Crum, established one of the first fee-only financial advisory firms in the country, which was an innovative and bold move given the commission-fueled world of investments that was prevalent at the time. Mr. Crum was on to something special and today, over 40 years later, RS Crum’s commitment to providing objective, professional financial advice has never wavered.

Over the years we have worked hard to build an environment that is both flexible and comfortable for our clients while maintaining a high priority on the details. We have grown as a result, but have done so carefully to make sure we have the right people in place to deliver an exceptional and highly personalized wealth management experience.

Based in Newport Beach, California, R.S. Crum, Inc. is an independent Registered Investment Advisor. With nearly $400 million in assets under management, RS Crum is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
